the smell test. >> jon: it has a yucky smell. conspiracy number one. the f.b.i. held back the petraeus affair story to prevent obama from losing the election. why we tray us' affair would have had any impact on the election i'm not sure. the point is if only a republican had known about this prior to election day. >> house majority leader eric cantor said an f.b.i. employee told him in october about the petraeus affair. >> jon: oh. the real question is, why is eric cantor protecting the president? why? conspiracy one down. why would the administration want to take out petraeus now? >> this is highly sus spush us in its timing >> a few days before petraeus is set to testify about what he knew about benghazi and what the c.i.a. did it doesn't make sense >> so many people are saying that's kind of suspicious >> this is very suspicious e fact that he no longer will have to testify >> now he won't testify, folks. jon: right before he was about to testify on benghazi, conspiracy number two, now we'll never know what petraeus knew unless quitting is different from dying. and has no bearing on
holder who certainly his attorney general would have been aware of what the f.b.i. was doing and i was told no and that it was this person's understanding that holder quite specifically understood how important it was not to let word of this out. not to inform the white house, to keep it at the justice department within proper channels. so i was given a quite specific answer to the question congressman rogers posed but it's a question people are going to want more detail on and they'll want to have people say maybe even on the record there was no leak to the white house. >> rose: there's also this question: did the c.i.a. director petraeus not want to resign and then only decided that he should resign after it became public? >> that's a very interesting part of this story and, again, i want to be honest with your viewers, i don't know the answer. it is a fact that after he was informed that this investigation was going on he did not resign that he waited until he was confronted, in effect, by his nominal superior, the director of national intelligence james clapper who called anymo
the agreement of the cia and the fbi. the white house and state department did not make those changes. rice used the talking points in tv appearances shortly after the attack and republicans accused her of making misleading statement business referring to the assault as a spontaneous demonstration by extremists, suggesting she did it for political reasons. the intelligence source says that the links to al qaeda were deemed too tenuous to make public. however, cia director david petraeus told congress he had agreed to release that information in early draft. it was passed along to dni. then the fbi, which made more. head of dni is james clapford who did reopen the case but who suggested the final edit which were then signed off on again, by all intelligence agencies is not known. charlie? >>> new hope for some of america's most beloved snacks. rebecca jarvis is here with that story. so the story is not over? >> it's not over. if you ran out and bought a $30 box of twinkies hopefully you didn't throw way the reseat. hostess has been trying to liquidate. they start this ha
that have to do with police, we have the fbi that is a national organization that has the resources to do things that the local to restrictions, whether state or local, do not have the resources to do. i believe it is possible to have a program for national disaster that is similar to what we do with police, fire, and disasters. we have a guide that was, in my opinion, the master of disaster, and for some reason they have ignored him for years. james lee witt, without question, the most effective person in the federal government during the clinton administration because he knew how to address disasters. all he is now is a paper pusher. that is basically it. guest: there is a lot of people but they there should be a greater federal role in disasters, but also a lot push back from others on the right, especially those that argue disaster relief should be more of a local responsibility, that more of the money should be returned to states that we use for disaster funding. there are a lot of instances where we see municipalities are overwhelmed. a lot of these places they rely on volunteer fir
the fbi were investigating american torture, rather than american love affairs. and this struck me with security contractors. we have had two months of heated controversy about benghazi and what happened. it was bad. four americans were killed. hundreds of security contractors were killed in iraq. i have written two books on iraq and i have never been able to figure out an exact number. the answer is no one cares and no one seems to care still. the official tally leaves out at least 57 incidents that we know about. the tally is quite suspect. this puts aside the foreign security contractors, south africans, costa ricans. there seems to be no tally of this at all and nobody cares. i have got to wonder how much of the mess in benghazi is simply fueled by fox news, poisoning the american bloodstream. it really bothers me. i compare that to the total carelessness about the deaths of security contractors in iraq. >> thomas ricks writes a blog on foreign policies website. ricks. foreignpolicy.com. he is the author of many books, including a new book called "the generals." let's hear from
